Hi everyone! What a fun day I had yesterday! I spent all day long in my craft room and I had such fun listening to the rain pour down and coloring away on the new images! Are you excited about the sneak peeks? There's some fun involved in the pre-release peeks too, so after you see my card, be sure to read about how you can win some of the new images!
For my first sneak peek I chose to use an image drawn by Crissy Armstrong. This darling image is called Santa's Mailbox.

I colored this with copic markers and then went to town on embellishments. I used some teeny buttons on Santa's coat, white flock on his beard and mustache, and some polar white flower soft for the snow on the ground.
Someone asked me about the flower soft the other day, and I think it feels like shredded foam. If you bought one of the white styrofoam balls, or cones they sell and ran it across a cheese grater I think you'd have yourself some white flower soft!
Of course, you'd probably have yourself quite a mess too!
I sponged some blue ink on the background for the sky. The words are computer generated and the paper I used is some free digital paper from Cherie Mask.
Isn't this just the cutest image? There's a ton more coming this Saturday and you'll want to check out the design team's pages today because they're all showing sneak peeks too.
Now how do you win images? Well, today through Friday there is an animated button hidden somewhere on the Squigglefly site. All you have to do is find the button, come back here and leave a comment telling me where the button is. Here's what the button looks like
I'm going to have the comments hidden from view so no one will see your answer. Then on Saturday, random.org will pick FIVE winners. Each winner will get to pick two images of their choice. They don't have to be one of the new images; so if there's an image you've had your eye on you can pick that one!
So, you've got three days to locate the button!
I won't keep you any longer because I know there is lots to see out there, and I know you're going to love what you see! Have a great day, and thanks for looking!
